It means the absolute world to me to be able to run on behalf of All Hands and Hearts in the NYC Half Marathon. The money raised for the marathon is for such a great cause and it’s a huge honor to raise money for AHAH. There are more than 2,000 runners who can use the race as an opportunity to raise funds for charities and non-profit organizations around the globe. It’s such a great athletic event with people who want to do good things for others. Also, there is a brand new course in 2018, which will be an awesome experience for anyone, whether they live in NYC or not.
